Asia-Pacific: Fastest-growing market, in terms of value, for rolling stock and its infrastructure
Asia-Oceania comprises emerging and developing economies such as India, China, Japan, and Korea, and is experiencing a considerable growth in population. The rolling stock industry is witnessing growing demand after a weak performance in 2008, following the global recession.
